Today I’m participating in a blog tour for Cecy Robson’s Inseverable, book one in her new Carolina Beach series. This is, IMHO, something a bit different from her….
Tag: New Adult
I don’t think I’ve read a story plot this deep or thought provoking as this one in a long, long time. My brain muscles are still un-cramping from all the thinking and flat out speed reading I’ve done in the last two days. This is just one of those stories that doesn’t have a good place to stop, regroup, and circle your thoughts back around.
I wouldn’t normally have noticed this book except that a publisher introduced it in an email. I read the synopsis and thought, “This sounds so adorable and perfect for a […]
I am officially addicted to Elle Kennedy’s writing. She writes good 😉 Seriously, though, I had her Off-Campus series in my Top Ten books of 2015. Each book has been worth every cent I paid for it, probably more.
The first book in Jennifer Chance’s Gowns & Crowns series was all about the Prince finding his Princess and all that fairytale romance mushy stuff, with a bit of intrigue added in. Well holy smokes did Ms. Chance ramp up the intrigue. She added in a whole lot of suspense to this second book in the series. It was almost as if Intrigue walked up to Romance and asked it to dance.
Here we go…. I’m going to sound a bit like every other review out there for a few moments but hang in there with me….
Come Back to Me is a new adult romance that called to me. It said over and over, “You’ll want to read a sweet, young romance for a mental […]
This entire series has been an addiction with me. I read Drew’s story in The Hook Up and was floored by the amount of PLOT in the romance. I pounced on Gray’s story in The Friend Zone. So there was no looking back when I could finally, FINALLY (yes, I am screaming) know what the heck is going on in quiet Dex’s mind.
Jus Accardo is finally back with the second book in her Eternal Balance series. To say I jumped all over this as soon as I saw this available to read and review would be an understatement. This is a story that has actually stuck with me after two years!
I sort of feel guilty that I’m putting both of these book reviews in a single post. For one, each book will be on my favorites list of 2015 this year. They are both that good. And second, each book needs their own limelight, their own little space under the spotlight so everyone notices this series.
It’s Fall and that means FOOTBALL around my parts! I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my lazy afternoon with my sick son than re-reading All Broke Down by Cora Carmack and dreaming of Ohio State Football Saturdays of past.
Being a fan of Jennifer Chance’s adult contemporary Rule Breakers series, I was beyond excited to be able to feature her brand new New Adult series Gowns & Crowns. I’ve been sitting on this post for weeks, excitedly waiting to share it with everyone because it’s such a timely subject both with her new book, Courted, and the direction the New Adult “genre” has gone in last year or so.
So, I’ve let yet another book sit, stew, and not get reviewed properly. Story of my life lately, huh? I remembered the story, I looked over my notes, but for the life of me I couldn’t figure out why I didn’t abundantly love Once Pure. I needed to investigate this! So I re-read the book. Here comes the conundrum: what review do I write?
As soon as I figured out that Ronnie Douglas was Melissa Marr, I had to know what she was going to do with the new adult genre. Especially because she noted that she wrote from experience on her Ronnie Douglas website. Sounds like fun to me!
What!? Another cover reveal? Yes, when it rains, it pours. Actually, it just so happened that two books that I WANTED to feature were back to back. Missing Dixie by Caisey Quinn technically already had it’s cover reveal yesterday but I’m sharing it again today because…
I want to recommend this book to every 18 -29 year old I know. Heck, I just want to recommend it to everyone. It’s not so much that this is book is piece of literary excellence; it’s good but it won’t be one of the great classics. The overall message of this story, or at least half the message, is what I “preach” to every young girl I meet who will allow me talk their ear off. It’s also partly the life I’ve actually lived.
I enjoyed Cecy Robson’s first book in her Shattered Past series, Once Perfect, but Once Loved blew that one out of the water for me! This was an intense romance.
I was interested in reading “Halfway Perfect” by Julie Cross and Mark Perini because I really enjoyed Ms. Cross’ book, “Third Degree” that came out last year. It was such a fun, clever, and romantic story. “Halfway Perfect” turned out to be a totally different type of story than “Third Degree” and maybe my disappointment in not getting another “Third Degree” clouded my enjoyment of this one. Ever have that happen to you? Have your expectations all set for one thing and then get served another? That’s kind of what happened to me here.
This book may have very well saved my book-brain’s life. I was in rut, stuck trudging through a book with no end in sight. I’ve got worlds to discover, people’s lives to live, and love to conquer. My brain, she needed a re-boot (please excuse the speaking about body parts as separate entities – I’m reading Darynda Jones at the moment and the book spilleth over into life). I picked up some other books and two other genres didn’t fix my rut. Drastic measures were needed.
Once Perfect is Cecy Robson’s first story in her Shattered Past series, a new adult romance series. It’s Ms. Robson’s unique spin on the old story of the good girl and “bad” boy from the wrong side of town. It’s a story where ultimately our heroine, Evelyn (Evie) proves to Mateo that they have more in common than one would believe looking in from the outside. I really enjoyed getting to that ultimate lesson at the end of the story, it made the ride worth it.
Rich billionaire rescues broke college student living a trailer park? HELLS to the NO’S!!! Ann Aguirre writes realistic love stories and she’s blown me away again with her second book in the 2B Trilogy. No sophomore slump here.
I recently attended a webinar that Ms. Carmack participated in where her and other authors discussed the new adult genre. When she mentioned that she would be publishing a paranormal / new adult story, I about fell out of my chair!
It is absolutely THE perfect time to read a college-aged, football-themed book. This story really took me back to my college days… memories….
Right from page one I was giggling and smiling at Cleo, her inner dialogue, and her antics.
